Students across the school district met at Covenant Baptist Church on Feb. 8 for the 12th annual READ-In.
Forty middle school students from area schools were divided into different groups to discuss the book, "Last Shot: A Final Four Mystery" by John Feinstein.
A.R. Rucker sixth-grader JeNae Jones enjoyed the book.
"I like the book because it's about sports... Basketball is a great sport and it's competitive," Jones said.
Just like the characters in the book, students received pointers about being a reporter.
